The 58-year-old sub-inspector, identified as Rajkumar, posted at the Police Control Room (PCR), was found dead in Shahdara’s Vivek Vihar area in East Delhi.
Rajkumar reportedly died as a result of assault following a quarrel with a suspected criminal in the Vivek Vihar area, officials said on Monday. The incident took place on Sunday night in Vivek Vihar area when he had gone out for a walk after dinner, a senior police officer said.
A case under the relevant sections of the IPC has been registered at Vivek Vihar police station and the accused, who is a history-sheeter, has been arrested, police said, adding that they are investigating whether other people were also involved in the incident.
“Police received information regarding the quarrel at 10.06 pm on Sunday. After reaching the spot, they found out that around 9 pm, a quarrel had taken place between Kumar and Vijay over the shooting of a video,” Meghna Yadav, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Shahdara), said.
